What’s on Indie Screams This Week

What’s on Indie Screams This Week (photo)

Posted by on

With Halloween less than two weeks away, we know you’re are getting in the scary spirit and ready to watch some Indie Screams. We’re here to help.

Here’s where to get your fear fix on IFC this week:

Wednesday

When the citizens of a small evangelical town systematically begin committing suicide, a young girl struggling to reconcile her Christian upbringing with her desire to experience the outside world finds her faith put to the ultimate test. “From Within” starts at 9 p.m. ET.

Thursday

The Tasmanian Tiger seems to have become extinct, but the search for the dying breed leads an ambitious zoologist to the discovery of a far more sinister species in this brutal Australian shocker. Now, in a land where human meat is scarce, the zoologist’s expedition will fall prey to species with a savage appetite, and a murderous motivation to keep their bloodline strong. “Dying Breed” airs at 7 p.m. ET

Friday

Welcome to the Titty Twister, a rough and tumble bar south of the border. It’s got beautiful girls, strong drinks, and a teensy little vampire problem. It’s also where Seth and Richie Gecko (George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino) are supposed to meet a local thug after a string of brutal robberies has forced them to go on the run. After a couple of drinks, they realize that they’re not in a typical bar, as the entire place begins to teem with vicious, blood-sucking vampires. With the odds stacked greatly against them, the Geckos and the family they kidnapped team together in hopes of defeating the creatures of the night. Sharpen your stakes and show up at 8:45 p.m. ET ’cause we’re showing “From Dusk Till Dawn.”

Saturday

All they wanted was a nice ladies weekend, but instead they got dead. A group of close female friends on a yearly adventure vacation find themselves trapped and hunted in a series of caves by an unknown force that lurks in the shadows in The Descent starts at 8 p.m. ET.

Sunday

Because nothing is scarier than real life, we’re showing David Fincher’s “Zodiac” at 7:30 p.m. ET. Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, and Robert Downey Jr. star as a mismatched team working to solve one of the most perplexing crime sprees in U.S. history. As the killer sadistically mocks the detectives by leaving a series of perplexing ciphers and menacing letters at the crime scenes, the investigation quickly flatlines when none of the evidence yields any solid leads.

Monday

As anyone who has seen “The Hurt Locker” can attest, director Kathryn Bigelow knows how to build suspense. So in “Near Dark,” when a restless young man from a small farm town, meets an alluring drifter named Mae (Jenny Wright), you know something is up. She reveals herself to be a vampire, who “turns” Caleb into one of her kind rather than kill him. But her family of creatures of the night aren’t elegant, cloaked aristocrats, they’re a gun-toting group that dresses and acts like a motorcycle gang. The film airs at 8 p.m. ET and again at midnight.

Tuesday

Pro Tip: Don’t go camping in Australia. In “Primal,” a group of friends venture into the wilds of Australia to study an ancient rock painting. The excursion was going great until one girl decided to go skinny-dipping in a nearby basin, and emerges bloodied and confused. Later, when she sprouts razor sharp teeth and appears to turn rabid, her friends become the prey in a vicious, bloody hunt. Tune in for fun at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.
